Presentation Transcript

  1. TAGGING Utilizing The Wisdom Of Social Networks To Enhance Your Library Services.

  2. TAGGING • Remember the “Big Red Books” LCSH? • Now you get to assign your own subject headings and search words that are natural to you.

  3. TAGS • Like subjects, keywords or categories used to describe “things.” • *Books *Pictures *Movies/DVDs • *Web sites *Songs/CDs *Articles • Created by YOU and how YOU think to describe them (not necessarily a defined set of subject terms).

  4. You can use as many TAGS as you wish Marker Pen Black Need to Refill Sharpie

  5. Library Thing • Utilizing the tagging system, Library Thing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. • You can access your catalog from anywhere, anytime and even from your mobile phone.

  9. COST? • Up to 200 books = FREE • 1 year unlimited = $10 • Lifetime unlimited = $25 • Organization = varies/pending

  10. OrganizationalPricing • Book clubs, knitting clubs, etc. For now, use a personal account. In the future, Library Thing will add some "group" features so members can have separate accounts but one joined library. • Non-profit and not-for-profit organizations (small libraries, churches, clubs, schools, classrooms). Free up to 200 books. $15/year for up to 5,000 books.

  11. PRIVACY and SHARING • What information do I need to give up? • None. Setting up an account only requires a username and a password. Do not even need an email address. • What if I don't want everyone to see what I have in my collection? • You can always choose to make your collection private under the "Edit your profile" on your profile page.
